Hmm, a local chicago series?

A real snooze-fest.

I give it 3 stars only due to mild historical value.

....well, it was the late-1940s, and TV was still fairly new. Many of the shows on the air were often among the first of their kind. Sometimes they tried a concept and it worked so well, it became commonplace. Sometimes, they tried a concept and it worked fine, but didn't become more than a novelty.

In this case, they tried a concept that just didn't work.

But hey, it's better to have tried and failed, than to have never tried at all.

Walt will not be rushed. He is going through every single step,... except the last one since he ran out of time.
It seems odd to me that someone who could afford a TV in 1949 would need to know how to build a sawhorse. Maybe instead, instructions on how to choose a contractor to build one for you.
SPOILER ALERT! This is a snooze festival
